About Tulip & Nettle
Tulip and Nettle children's clothes are made FOR children not BY children. Our clothes are all manufactured here in the North East of England in a few small excellent factory units, by properly paid adults. We are a truly local company. Everything from our photography to dispatch of your order is from our Northumberland base. We keep our production levels small, so the range will always be special.
The Tulip & Nettle bridesmaids and pages collection is bursting with sweet ideas for small wedding attendants. Dresses range from the romantic Jane Austen inspired Fairy Dress to the crisper 60s mood of the Shrimpton or Monaco styles. Ribbons and trims can be customised to fit individual schemes. Ideas for page boys include tiny Sailor Suits or dashing Poet Shirts.
We started with just the Tulip label in 1998. Nettle came into being when a customer pointed out to us that her 12 year old son found the Tulip label in his trousers a shade girly. Grown Up clothes are a more recent introduction to the range. The look was originally inspired by the owner's children, but the name came from her dogs! Tulip was a much loved Pug and Nettle is a Jack Russell.
Everything we manufacture is unique to us (apart from a few carefully chosen bought in accessories and toys which are sourced from all over the world) and is a deeply considered element in a balanced collection. The range is well priced for what is essentially a designer product. Small production runs, top quality raw materials, and attention to really good shape and cut.
Clothes to love, cherish, and above all, actually wear every day.
